Autoflight Aviation Technology unveiled its two-seat, all-electric V600 eVTOL prototype in April 2019 at the Aero Friedrichshafen air show. The designation V600 refers to the 600-kg (13,231-pound) upper weight limit for the European Union Aviation Safety Agency's ultralight type certification class. This model appears to be a platform from which to develop a larger, and as-yet unnamed, eVTOL with four seats.
At the time of the Aero Friedrichshafen 2019 launch, Autoflight indicated that it was just a few weeks away from making a first flight with the V600. However, this had still not happened as of September 2020. The program timeline calls for a production version of a larger "production-grade vehicle" to be ready to fly in 2022, with passenger operations projected to start in 2025. The aircraft is intended for a variety of roles, including air-taxi services and cargo delivery.
No specifications or performance details have been published. The V600 design unveiled in April 2019 featured six 8-foot-2-inch propellers for lift and a single 5-foot-10-inch pusher propeller for horizontal flight. Three propellers are installed on booms on each side of the fuselage, with two pointing down on each side and one pointing up. The aircraft has a wing with conventional flight control surfaces, including flaps and ailerons.
The China-based company has a Germany-based subsidiary called AutoFlightX. On September 13, 2020, it unveiled a new unmanned cargo-carrying eVTOL designated as the V400 and confirmed that it also has plans for a larger logistics aircraft called the V1000.
